    Egyptian Official: Israel Could Be Behind Deadly Shark Attack

    Read more:

    An Egyptian official believes that Israel's intelligence agency might be behind the fatal shark attack of a German tourist in Sinai over the weekend, the Jerusalem Post reports.

    "What is being said about the Mossad throwing the deadly shark (in the sea) to hit tourism in Egypt is not out of the question, but it needs time to confirm," South Sinai Gov. Muhammad Abdel Fadil Shousha told

    Israeli officials told the Jerusalem Post that the claims were ludicrous and would not comment.

    Egyptian authorities have reopened some Red Sea beaches that had been closed to swimmers after an unusual series of shark attacks over the past week.

    Swimmers were being allowed back into the water of several bays at Sharm el-Sheikh, a resort at the southern tip of the Sinai Peninsula that is a renowned reef diving spot. Diving remained restricted to professionals.

    Shark attacks at Egypt's Red Sea resorts are rare, and three shark experts from the U.S. are trying to determine what is behind them.

    Besides the death, four other swimmers and snorkelers were badly injured.

    On Tuesday, Ziad al-Basel of Egypt's Chamber of Diving and Watersports, said a limited number of bays were reopened for swimmers.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    i think it's kinda funny that the Red Sea naturally houses the Oceanic Whitetip Shark (Carcharhinus longimanus), which holds the record of having the most human munchies.

    "Famed oceanographic researcher Jacques Cousteau described the oceanic whitetip as "the most dangerous of all sharks".[13] Despite the greater notoriety of the great white shark and other sharks habitually found nearer the shore, the oceanic whitetip is responsible for more fatal attacks on humans than all other species combined, as a result of predation on survivors of shipwrecks or downed aircraft.[1][14] Such incidents are not included in common shark-attack indices for the 20th and 21st centuries, and as a result of this, the oceanic whitetip does not have the highest number of recorded incidents.[15] [16] Nonetheless, incidents involving the oceanic whitetip total in the thousands worldwide,[16] with one incident alone, the torpedoing of USS Indianapolis on 30 July 1945, alleged to have accounting for 600 to 800 sailors, though the most reportedly died from exposure to the elements rather than from shark attacks.[17]
    Also during World War II, the Nova Scotia, a steamship carrying approximately 1,000 people near South Africa, was sunk by a German submarine. With only 192 survivors, many deaths were attributed to the whitetip.[1]"
